You Beauty Discovery – October Review

So You Beauty Discovery changed the time their selection would be available this month from 12am to 7am, advising subscribers it was due to customer feedback. Personally I thought this was a smart move and I was happy to see them take this decision. They didn’t promise that the site wouldn’t crash (in fact it did as some experienced) but it did mean that You Beauty Discovery could do all the necessary, behind the scenes IT changes, before the selection went live, and more importantly I could enjoy my beauty sleep and order in the morning!

This month the selection was loosly based around the theme “Handbag Heroes” and included the product choices:
Paul Mitchell Fast Form (25ml), Lalique Nilang Fragrance (4.5ml), Wild About Beauty Power Eyeshadow (2.5g), Crystal Clear Intense Anti-Ageing Serum (30ml), Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick (4g), MeMeMe Cherubs Blush Cheek & Lip Tint (12ml), Spiezia Organics Facial Cleanser (10ml), Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser (30ml), Melvita Youthful Day Cream (10ml), and Crabtree & Evelyn – Nail Lacquer (15ml).

It was a tough call with some great value items, but as usual there were some products I had my eye on at the very start and that I was lucky enough to snap up.

Firstly I chose this beautiful miniature perfume flacon by Lalique. The Nilang fragrance launched many years ago, but Lalique redesigned the bottle and brought it’s classic fragrance bang up to date. With floral notes of Freesia and Jasmine, and bottom notes of Amber, Sandalwood and Patchouli this is a gorgeous scent; however as this perfume doesn’t seem to be currently stocked I hope I don’t fall in love with it too much! It came beautifully packaged in an organza bag with a fabric flower.

My second choice was the Intense Anti-Ageing Serum by Crystal Clear, a brand first developed in 1995 by beauty therapist Sharon Hilditch who wanted to find a gentle anti-ageing alternative to surgery and painful laser treatments. Skincare is my weakness so I knew from the outset that I wanted this in my box. At 30ml this is really generous size and is worth a whopping £29. It has a lovely lightweight texture and a slightly orangey-citrus scent.

This month each box includes a 50ml GOLD COLLAGEN® Forte; an anti-aging liquid beauty supplement high in hydrolysed collagen and anti-oxidents, and a 2ml sachet of Cowshed Perfecting Night Serum. Both nice additions to an already fantastic box.

You Beauty Discovery boxes cost just £6.95 per month and i’m yet to have a box that hasn’t impressed. This month my box also arrived in record time; taking just 2 days!
